SQA Examination Results
Congratulations to our pupils who have worked very hard to achieve outstanding examination results. The results for the school have improved on previous years.

In S4, 65.1% of pupils achieved at least five National 5 Awards. This is our best ever performance in S4.

In S5, 27.6% of pupils achieved five Higher Grade passes, again this is our best ever performance. A record number of 12 pupils achieved 5 ‘A’ grade passes.

In S6, 44.6% of pupils achieved five Higher grade passes, this is an increase on the previous year and 25.4% of pupils achieved at least one Advanced Higher again this is our best ever performance.

Overall the SQA results are excellent and are a testament to the hard work of our pupils and staff.

School Uniform
We enjoy good support from parents in maintaining our school dress code and we are determined not to let standards slip. We will continue to insist that pupils come to school properly dressed and we ask for your continued support with this.
As a number of parents have generously handed in blazers to the school we may be able to provide blazers in some situations.

Option Choices
Pupils should have made final decisions by now about which courses they will study. If you have any concerns or questions about the subjects and levels your son or daughter is studying, please contact the school as soon as possible as the sooner we make any changes the better.

The Dalzielian 2017
Our yearbook, The Dalzielian, is on sale now. Priced at £12, this is subsidised to keep the costs down. This is a great memento documenting the last twelve months in the school. Make sure you get your copy.

Choral Shield 2017
Choral Shield rehearsals are now well underway and we look forward to great shows on Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 June. Some tickets are still available for both nights and any ordered tickets are now ready at the School Office for collection.

Science & Technology Fayre
The Science and Technology Fayre took place on Friday 9 June and this was a great success. Our thanks go to the growing list of sponsors who support this excellent event.

Dalziel Day Out
This year over 400 pupils will participate in our school day out on Friday 16 June. This year’s venues include Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Go-karting, Wall-climbing, Edinburgh Dungeon and Wake-boarding. Pupils will be notified at assemblies of arrangements for their chosen event.

SQA Results
Pupils will receive their SQA exam results on 8 August and can sign up to My SQA and receive them by text or e-mail. Results will be sent out at 8.00 am on 8 August. Even if pupils sign up to get their results electronically, they should also receive their certificates in the post on that day.
